The Great River House is a stunning, private villa located on five acres of property inside a gated neighborhood. The Montego Bay vacation home underwent an intensive renovation in 2008 and a further updates in 2015. Today, the ocean-view Jamaican villa boasts a sophisticated interior and exterior and every modern amenity guests could possibly desire. Journey to the warm sands of the Caribbean and stay at one of the best villa's Jamaica has to offer. 

The five-bedroom, 7,500-square-foot villa has five full bathrooms and two half baths. The home, originally built by a Dupont family member, is just minutes away from the elite Round Hill club. The home retains its classic roots while embracing the modernity of its more recent updates, masterminded by modernist architect Tom Reed.  

The curved, saltwater pool is one of the major results of the 2015 redesign efforts. The pool has an infinity waterfall edge, a fountain, and a separate shallow section perfect for children. The cool, blue waters are surrounded by a stone deck, perfect for enjoying the view of Jamaica's verdant hills. Guests can also longue on the pool's sundeck or under the shaded poolside awning. 

Active guests will jump at the chance to use the putting green and play rounds of badminton, bocce ball, and croquet. The Great River House also has a private tennis court with an on-call pro for guests who want to hone their skills.

Indoors, guests can use the complimentary Wi-Fi, watch cable TV, use the DVD player, listen to music using the wireless sound system, and enjoy Netflix, Pandora, and Spotify. 

The Great River House is also a great place for children. The villa has a swing, books, and games for kids. Parents can also use the villa's high chair, car sets, and strollers. 

Though group entertainment is a big part of the villa's allure, the Great River House also offers guests a chance to slip away for some peace and quiet. Duck into the private, side courtyard for an open-air shower or request a spa treatment.

Reviews

Terrific, kind, courteous and friendly staff. Prince is an exceptional butler. His charm and courtesy made this a delightful experience. We all loved him. Desmond is the best cook we've ever met! The cooking here is superb! Desmond accommodated small children, a vegetarian, and different schedules. We couldn't wait for each meal! Beautifully maintained house and grounds. We loved the table linens! Having Sonos was great. This is the 6th villa we have rented and by far our favorite! Beautiful, well thought out house. Thank you for all the ways you made us so cozy and relaxed and happy!
The entire team was excellent. The food was wonderful and everyone was very accommodating to our son with allergies. Prince was extremely helpful and we greatly appreciated his efforts, as well as Karen, Suzette, Desmond and Ron. Furnishings are very attractive and beds very comfortable!
